Four new works are being developed over the course of the Project, which runs July 9-Aug. 1. The workshops culminate in staged readings, which are open to the public. Ian Morgan will direct Zohar Tirosh's Six, which will feature Annie Purcell (The Coast of Utopia), Ronald Guttman ("Lipstick Jungle"), Darren Goldstein (Abigail's Party), Laura Esterman (Marvin’s Room), Gil Bar-Sela and Shelly Sussler. In the play, press notes state, "a jet-lagged, sun-drenched, six-day trip to contemporary Israel collides with family, politics and the Six-Day War." (July 9-11).

Joe DiPietro's Creating Claire, under the direction of Christopher Ashley, will feature Celia Keenan-Bolger (Spelling Bee), Johanna Day (Proof) and Matthew Arkin (Dinner With Friends). The new work is described as "an exploration of the supernova that results when science, faith and politics collide." (July 16-18).

Scheduled to appear in Anna Ziegler's Photograph 51 are Elizabeth Jasicki (Abigail’s Party), Matt Stadelman ("Rachel Getting Married"), Louis Cancelmi (The Singing Forrest), Ben Rappaport and Liam Craig. Evan Cabnet directs the work "based on the true story of Rosalind Franklin and her unaccredited contribution to the discovery of DNA's double helix." (July 23-25).

Hal Brooks will direct Aladdin Ullah's solo work, Indio: "Aladdin rejects the legacy of his immigrant parents, until a PBS documentary forces him to uncover the journey of his father, Habib." (July 30-Aug. 1).

The Cape Cod Theatre Project is located in Falmouth, MA. Tickets (suggested donation of $20) may be purchased by calling the box office at (508) 457-4242 or online at www.capecodtheatreproject.org
